ECPAT UK Youth Group

The ECPAT UK Youth Group

Girls on beachThe ECPAT UK Youth Groups are two groups of young people aged 15-23 who have been identified as trafficked in the UK. The groups, run by ECPAT UK Youth Group Coordinator Debbie Beadle, meet on a weekly basis to support each other and develop life skills. The Youth Groups also play an important role informing our campaigns and advocating for the rights of children.

Activities include social outings, where young people can relax and take time out from their often hectic lifestyles and meet other young people. There is a programme of workshops to develop important skills for both personal and professional life, as well as access to a educational mentoring scheme to assist with academic needs. The Youth Groups also develop youth participation projects, creating materials and knowledge to enhance practice and the response to child victims of trafficking in the UK.

If you are working with a young person who may be a victim of trafficking and would benefit from joining the ECPAT UK Youth Group, the criteria is:

•    Aged 15-23
•    Practitioner as concerns about trafficking

Educational Mentoring and Befriending Programme

ECPAT UK has teamed up with The Refugee Support Network. This programme started as a direct response to the wishes of the ECPAT UK Youth Group. ECPAT UK and RSN provide specialist training to volunteer mentors in working with child victims of trafficking. The mentors provide educational support which is tailored to the young people’s needs. This may be support with literacy, homework or assisting with job applications. If you are interested in mentoring visit RSN website: www.refugeesupportnetwork.org.

Compensating Victims of Serious Crime

ECPAT UK supports young victims of trafficking to obtain compensation for the crime that has been committed against them. We work with the legal firm Hogan Lovells to assist young victims to file compensation claims under The Compensation Scheme. Hogan Lovells is kindly offering its service to victims of trafficking free of charge.

If you are a young person who has suffered a physical or mental violence, or a professional who is working with a child who has may have been trafficked please download one of our compensation leaflets (available in 12 languages) and get in touch with ECPAT UK for more details.
